In addition to all the relaxation and fun with my kids I plan to have this summer, I need to get back into the swing of writing and revising.
I need to pick a project and knock it out before moving on to the next.
I need one achievable goal to focus on.
I need to have set times to write.
And I need to leave my house to do it.
I set up a really awesome area on my deck where I can write and read and edit and relax. But we had hail damage in our neighborhood about six weeks ago. Everyone is getting new roofs and siding and garage doors. So it's not relaxing outside anymore. Maybe I need to bust out the noise-reduction headphones. I wonder if they will drown out the sound of power tools and hammering.
I have two weeks until the repairs on my house starts. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to escape the sound of that.
Overall, I'm exhausted from my kids and I being sick for a whole month. I'm tired and unmotivated. My Muse is whimpering in a fetal position under my cluttered desk. Maybe first I need a nap.
